I've been on a bit of a DIY beauty kick lately. You may remember my DIY hair mask from January. My DIY beauty makin' fun didn't end there! And I'm not alone...Nicole got in on the action last week with her DIY Winter Skin Solutions video tutorial. And now we've got another recipe for your face! You'll find most of the DIY facial scrub ingredients right in your kitchen.
Not only is making your own beauty products more economical than buying them, but you can control all the ingredients that go into them, which I love. So, if you want a completely natural or organic product, you can just make one! All you need is a little patience and some free time. My beauty lovin' friend and I made a girly afternoon afternoon out of it and enjoyed a glass or two of vino while we experimented with various DIY beauty projects. I highly recommend you have your own friends over for a little girl bonding/DIY sesh!
One of the ingredients that we used quite a bit was coconut oil. I'm a huge fan of coconut oil for many reasons. Not only is it a great, moisturizing base for many DIY beauty products, but it's good for you too. So, it's not a bad idea to have some on hand for your beauty AND nutritional needs. Just sayin.'
I'm sure I'm not the only one whose skin has been a bit dull thanks to winter. Now that spring is headed this way, I want to put my best face forward. The more vibrant my skin is, the less makeup I'll have to use. Enter this DIY exfoliating facial scrub...
Combine moisturizing oils with exfoliating cane sugar and fragrant essential oil.
